I don’t know how to tell you this, but restaurants – places that deal exclusively in selling you things to eat and drink – keep putting liquids in things that aren’t cups.

I don’t know why this is. Nor do I know why it’s so prevalent. But it seems to be spreading. In fact, there’s an entire subreddit dedicated to it called r/wewantcups.

Don’t believe me? Just look at these abominations.

15. A waffle cone

Ok, this is probably the best one of the bunch. It’s basically just melted ice cream.

14. A bowl

Well this feels like a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Hot coffee… too hot to hold the bowl. We want cups!! (or at least a friggin handle)

13. A baby bottle

I’m sorry, this is the most demeaning thing I can imagine to do to your customers.

Look nice, very impractical.

A cocktail in two parts. Equally stupid.

Thought they’d run out of cups… nope, this is the drinking glass

3. A bag

How is one supposed to consume this?

My mojito just arrived in a plastic bag. In a small trolley. SMH

Monty Python would be very proud.

Saw a friend post this drink in a Spam container and was appalled.

Just in time for Halloween.

Another bathtub, spooky edition

Write your congress representative to let them know that you. Want. Cups. Only we can make a difference.
